So far only 37 deaths have occurred in Australia, out of  5,744 confirmed cases, with nearly 700 people recovering from the pandemic.

The Message

The Governor-General has conveyed a message from The Queen to Australians about the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic on his official Facebook Page:

At a time when people across the Commonwealth are experiencing a profound and rapid change to their lives, the pain of lost loved ones, and an understandable concern about the future, my thoughts are with all Australians.

Whilst it can be difficult to remain hopeful in such challenging times, especially following the summer’s devastating bushfires and recent flooding, I am confident that the stoic and resilient nature of the Australian people will rise to the challenge.

I extend my sincere admiration to the many Australians who work tirelessly to help those affected, provide essential services for their fellow citizens, and continue to care for the most vulnerable.

You will remain in my prayers in the coming months, with the resolute knowledge that with hard work, faith and unity, we will rise to the challenges ahead and ensure the health and vitality of all Australia’s communities.

I send my thanks and warmest good wishes to you all.


The message can also be read on the Australian Governor-General’s official website at www.gg.gov.au.
